Dear Class of 2021 Parent,
On behalf of the New Trier Parents' Association (NTPA) we look forward to welcoming you to the Class of 2021.
Every Parents' Association survives through the volunteering generosity of its parents and we are the same. Volunteering with the NTPA offers a fabulous opportunity to learn more about the workings of our school, to meet parents from across the Township and to really be a part of your student's school life at a time when these opportunities diminish significantly!!
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed the NTPA Class of 2021 Co-Chairs who will head up your volunteer board - Michelle Paul and Julie Radner.
Michelle is from Wilmette, has three boys - Geoffrey (Class of 2011), Ethan (Class of 2018) and a rising freshman - Graeme. Michelle has served on the Harper and Highcrest Boards as well as the New Trier Hockey Club Board. You can reach Michelle at
or (847) 558-9045. Julie is from Glencoe, has a daughter - Lauren (Class of 2019) and incoming Freshman - Josh. Julie is a past President of Glencoe PTO. She grew up in Glencoe and went to New Trier (Class of 1989). You can reach Julie at
or (312) 933-4916.
If you would like to volunteer and work with the 2021 board, please complete the online form below this letter. We are happy to have your class in such capable hands.
New Trier Parents' Association Co-Presidents-Elect (2017-18)
